Property Description

Communism is back!

Between Old Town and Jewish Quarter (Kazimierz) you can find a place which shows you the absurdity of communism times in Poland ‘through colorful and optimistic glasses’. A place where you have an opportunity to touch (quite literally) some characteristic elements of those bizzare years, which will make your eyes open wide and make you laugh reminding or realizing them.

Good Bye Lenin will offer you rooms stylized on past decade, bar with Lenin touch and garden where you can chill after sightseeing or get some cheap drinks before heading to clubs. If you are interested in going to Auschwitz, Wieliczka Salt Mine or sightseeing in this amazing city - our laid back staff will help you with everythin because we are here for you!

This is a place that lets the positive energy flow and create – good talk, great fun and lasting friendships. This place is for all who know that it is the people that make the journey. This is also what we believe in, which is why we invite you to stay with us while in Krakow and make your journey absolutely amazing!

And facilities like free bed linen, free internet, free laundry and free self-service buffet breakfast are so obvious to us that seem abundant to mention it (see our Facilities section for the full list) View House Rules

    Pros: lobby with sofas, nicely decorated, large common rooms with bar and kitchen in the baseroom, clean bathrooms, comfy bed, decent breakfast included, cool style What we didn't like: first thing I noticed was a poster and flyers advertising a "shooting experience" with real (military) weapons that could be booked at the reception, the hostel is located next to train tracks (train noise all night), the room was quite chilly, heating didn't work properly, toaster didn't work, no bed light.

    The staff were amazing at this hostel, helping us figure out what trains and buses we needed to take multiple times! It was mostly empty due to the off season, so not much atmosphere, though the decor was fun. Negatives: the Wifi, which didn't work in our room (number 13), nor in half of the communal downstairs lounge area. Also, the ensuite bathroom had tile dangerously coming loose from the floor, and the shower door wouldn't open. We ended up using the general bathrooms, which were great.

    Very Good

    Hostel was a good price, kind of hard getting to the location though. About a 20 min walk to the city center. Some staff were really nice and helpful while others seemed to rather be on their phone than help you. Also, facilities were really loud when cleaning the bathrooms in the mornings. Overall it was nice for the price but could use some improvements.

    4 bunk beds in 10 sqm room, quite squizzed. bathroom in the room, ok, but not very clean and shower water always warm and never hot. area is quite calm not noisy, no traffic and fairly close to old town. at first floor you can hear the people talking downstairs in the hall (bothering at night). staff is nice. overall just ok, wouldn't spend more than one night.

    It says on the site that the bar is open but when I arrived it was closed the whole weekend. I would have gone else where if I had known. Not fair to travellers spending their money.

    This place was dirty and run down. No bar as advestised. Broken beds. Only 1 single toilet/shower bathroom per floor so it was very difficult to get ready to leave. All staff were new and couldn't tell me why the bar was not open. Room was like a prison cell, no mirror even so I had to put makeup on in the toilet room. Breakfast was sad, dirty kettle, broken toaster. Don't stay here.
